This contest is unofficial, but it is fun! Created by droidfreak36, the contest challenges NXTLOGgers to build a robot that can clear a table of LEGO bricks in as small an amount of time as possible! I have finished my entry, and will be posting it sometime next week (I'm still working on the description and pics). If you have an NXT, I suggest you join the competition. It is a very well made challenge, and even if you don't win you can still get honorable mention (to get honorable mention, you need to get a better score than droidfreak36 himself). I mentioned that "if you don't win you can still get honorable mention" because I'm going to win.  Grin

Good luck, and I hope you enter!  Wink

I hope Mak sees it too, and as intelligent as I know he is, I would bet all my Lego he says the same thing as me...

CC didn't start the contest, though. =P

One thing though; where's the link to the contest? Just curious, there. =)

Droidfreak36 created the contest. I am simply entering, and winning.  Smiley You're right though, it does seem like it should be cheating of some kind. Not only that, but now that the contest has started he is entering another LEGO pusher. I have implied to him that I'm not going to post mine until after he posts his (doesn't it make sense to know the score you have to beat to get honorable mention before you enter?). He didn't post a deadline, either, so he can easily just keep posting creations trying to beat mine (not that he would... or would he? I think the awesomeness of mine will blow him away cool). bottom line is that no one should be able to enter their own contest.

Thanks, Blade. I can't believe I forgot the link. Tongue I'll add it.

Hmm. It does sound interesting.

It also sounds like it should be fun to watch unfold. =P Though, technically that goes for anything that goes on in local LEGO sites.(Aka, not fansites.)

The NXTLog brings back memories though. =D

Yes. It will be interesting. Right now I can't stop thinking about the Sensor Overload Competition, which ends tomorrow (June 30th). With 93 entries, it should take the judges a while to judge. The last contest it only took them 4 or 5 days, but this contest has more than twice as many entries.

The NXTLOG brings back memories?

Question: Can someone who does not own Mindstorms offer challenges?  because I've got about five challenges (one specifically with you in mind!) in my head right now, and I'd love to see what people do with them.

EDIT: Even if not, would you guys be interested in hearing them?

Well hey; even if it can't be put onto the Mindstorms site(Though... I wouldn't see why not, given that normal users could comment, though waiting for confirmation would be best. =P); they could always be put up on here, right?

Flipz. Yeah! You can totally make a contest on the NXTLOG!  Smiley However, just as a warning, you might not get a ton of entries (this contest, although it has been up for over two months, has gotten zero entries (a more general contest such as a "tank building" contest would get more entries. Also, you must remember to be clear on the types of entries that are acceptable in your contest, detailed rules, and judging criteria (not that I doubt you would be vague). I suggest using an official NXTLOG contest as an example, and not doing more than 1 contest at a time. I think it would be awesome if you made a contest!!  Smiley

By the way, I'm sorry if I'm not very active here for the next 6 weeks. I just started an intense summer college class. Yes, my NXT building will have to be put on hold too.  Sad

Huh, they must have changed the rules. I tried once before and got rejected because it wasn't an official challenge.

Hi Jayko! It's good to meet you here. You haven't posted an NXT on the NXTLOG for a while, do you still NXT? By the way, I really like your Sleepy Tabby entry for the Robot Pet contest, and quite a few of your other projects.  Smiley

Yes, it seems they have. How long ago was it that you tried submitting it? If you don't mind sharing, what was your challenge? I'm interested to hear what it was.

@CC: I'll PM you the challenge I have specifically for you (it requires 2 NXT units), and then you can tell me what I need to improve before I give any others. Wink

Yea, I know I haven't posted much. My schedule has gotten twice as busy since last fall, but I look on the bright side: Durring that time, I was on an FLL team, and we made it to the world festival! Got a lot of NXT there!
Right now Im juggling a lot of things at once, a stop motion movie, a technic creation, and a brick built creation, all due at different times this month. So not a lot of room for NXT

Glad to have met someone who recognizes my work! And thanks for the complements! I just took a look at your work, quite amazing! (not to mention the LEGO Launcher, which about blew my  head off!)

The contest I submitted was about 2 years ago. And was about building a cup stacking robot. Build a robot that could 3 cups into a tower.

Jayko, FLL is AWESOME!! Congrats on making it to the world festival!! That is fantastic, and every FLLer's dream. Congratulations to your team.  Smiley Do you think when you're old enough you'll move on to FRC or FTC? And do you see mentoring an FLL team in your feature?
